State law requires each Ohio county to establish or join other counties to form a “solid waste management district.” In 1989, Jefferson and Belmont Counties formed the Jefferson-Belmont Regional Solid Waste Authority (JBRSWA). The JBRSWA Board of Trustees is composed of 15 members representing both Counties as specified in the provisions of the Ohio Revised Code 3734.54.
The JBRSWA is responsible for implementing a solid waste management plan designed to achieve the goals set by the Ohio EPA for waste reduction, recycling and reducing reliance on land filling waste generated within the two counties. We receive our funding through tipping fees generated by landfills and transfer stations in the district. These fees are then used to provide programs and services for our residents, businesses and industries. In 2011, the JBRSWA began to operate its recycling operations and services under the new name of the JB Green Team.
